Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Ian, have you heard of, or seen the funny book on punctuation titled EATS, SHOOTS AND LEAVES...?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eats,_Shoots_%26_Leaves

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.

"Why?" asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

"Well, I'm a panda," he says. "Look it up."

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

A couple of days off and I'm a long way behind what's happening.

Hope you're feeling well, Spud.

Bought a new laptop a couple of months ago and still struggle with Windows 8. There doesn't seem to be any logic in it compared to Vista. Perhaps a used Apple/Mac next time.

A quote from a book of funnies I've been reading, one that illustrates the importance of commas.

Rowan Atkinson as a police inspector in "The Thin Blue Line"

"You know what the result will be don't you? Your cock-up, my arse"

I don't know "Herk" all that well, it's his Significant Other, Elizabeth that I sometimes talk on the phone with.  If I can get in touch with her, I'll ask if I can give you her addy, or phone number....or both.  She is VERY ill, and never going to get better, but we don't talk about that. I try to make her laugh...produces pain-relieving beta endorphins, ya know. Has good days and bad days. But she has been a great friend for more than 10 years, even though we have never met face to face.

Felaine, I've got that "have you found jebus" joke in my humor folder.  Very funny.

Blackfoot is about 20 miles away.  It may be worth a trip to meet them.  I read some of Herk's blog and he seems to not take the inappropriate harassing of women seriously.  What to you think?

I'm just damn nosy so keep going to the menus & poking to see what's what.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 25, 2014 at 2:15pm

Patricia, you are a great tutor. Stupid me, I am a poor reader-learner. Show me and I can get it. Reading for instruction is like reading a formula written by physicists. You are a real treasure.
